The open question of the mechanism of the chemiluminescence of simple 1,2-dioxetanone is revisited by means of a DFT approach. Calculations suggest that the thermal decomposition of this molecule occurs due to a concerted mechanism and not due to a step-wise biradical process. The use of a closed-shell, instead of an open-shell, approach in the study of simple 1,2-dioxetanone is also suggested in this work.
